Vans like this one carried general freight in all weather through the often treacherous Fraser Canyon. Because of the narrow roads, sharp curves and wooden bridges, trucks using this route were limited to a length of 30 feet and 30,000 lbs. GVWR. Originally a tractor, Bob King acwuired this truck when he purchased Sea-Van Motor Freight in 1946. The truck was restored in the livery of Vanderspek's Transportation by Lions Gate Painting.
